If you're running a Windoze box at home, then Active Perl and Win32
Apache take only half an hour or so to install, and form a pretty good
simulation of what you'd get at a web hosting site, modulo the
differences between w32 and unix.
There are more lightweight web servers that would suffice but would
be less similar to what Apache gives you.
Of course if you're a linux fan it's even closer. (Beware of
nonstandard Apache RPMs and linuxconf, though).

That's why having a working system at your fingertips beats
poking around in the entrails of a distant SP's system.
